Once upon a time, there lived in a certain city in China a poor tailor who had a son called Aladdin. When Aladdin was ten, his father wanted to teach him to be a tailor, but Aladdin was lazy. He didn’t like sewing and making clothes, so he ran off to play with his friends whenever his father tried to teach him.
Aladdin’s father died, and his mother began spinning cotton to earn money. Aladdin carried on playing with his friends. One day, while he was playing in the street, a man saw Aladdin. This is the boy I’ve been looking for,’ he said to himself. ‘My boy!” he said to Aladdin. ‘At last I have found you!”
“Who are you?” asked Aladdin.
‘I am your father’s brother. I knew you were his son the moment I saw you. You’re just like him.’
‘But my father is dead, sir,’ said Aladdin. ‘Oh no!” said the man. ‘Then I am too
late.’ And he began to cry. ‘Here, take these, my boy,’ he said, and gave Aladdin ten gold coins. ‘Give them to your mother and tell her that I should like to visit her tomorrow.
Aladdin ran like the wind and told his mother about the man. “He’d like to visit us tomorrow,’ he said.
‘What are you talking about, Aladdin? Your father has no brothers living.
‘But, mother, as I told you, he wants to
come to see us tomorrow.’
The man came to the house and told the story of how he had
been away for many years and had wanted to see his brother again. He was heartbroken that he had arrived too late. Aladdin’s mother was so moved by the man’s tears that she believed his story. Neither she nor Aladdin realised that the man was in fact
an impostor from Morocco.
The impostor offered to help Aladdin to become a merchant, selling silk in a shop of his own. Aladdin and his mother were delighted. He took Aladdin to the market and bought him a fine suit of clothes.
The following day, the impostor took Aladdin to a beautiful garden. In the garden, he showed Aladdin a big marble stone.
‘Under that stone there is treasure that belongs to you, Aladdin. Come, lift the stone.”
‘But uncle,’ Aladdin replied, “I am not strong
‘Do as I say,’ said the impostor. Ox
